Oct. 03, 2012 @ 11:18 AM

HUNTINGTON —  Little Victories Animal Shelter is hosting its 2nd annual Zombie Walk Festival on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Pullman Square.

The festival kicks off at 1 p.m.after the Marshall Homecoming Parade. The Zombie Walk starts at 8 p.m. at Pullman Square. The cost to enter the walk is $15 (includes T-shirt) or $10 (without T-shirt).

There will be activities for all ages at the festival, including a brain-eating contest, pumpkin decorating contest, zombie corn hole games, a custom caricature artist, a fortune-teller, zombie coloring competition, zombie photo opportunities, face painting, a DJ, and more.

Festivals foods include BBQ, cotton candy, popcorn, scary desserts, soft drinks, pizza, and pepperoni rolls.

 Attendees are encouraged to come as they are or to wear their favorite zombie costume. Pets are welcome, too. Prizes will be awarded for the cutest and scariest child’s costume, cutest and scariest pet costume, cutest and scariest adult’s costume, as well as the best owner and dog couple costume.

 A king and queen of the zombie walk also will be crowned.

 For those wanting help with their zombie costume, zombie makeup stations will be available along with a limited selection of clothing items that participants can purchase for a small fee and can rip, tear, and distress for their costume.

 Magic Makers, on Fourth Avenue in Huntington, is offering 10 percent off all special effect makeup purchases if you mention you’re joining the zombie walk.

There will be several raffles, including one to win a one-of-a-kind makeup special effect created by Robert (RJ) Haddy. RJ was a finalist on SyFy channel's "Faceoff" competition and is a teacher at Capital High School. RJ has donated his custom made Batman's "The Penguin" nose prosthetic that will be displayed in a shadow box along with an autographed photo of him in full costume.

 All proceeds from the event support Little Victories Animal Rescue. Little Victories is a non-profit, no-kill animal rescue shelter in Ona that provides medical care, spaying and neutering, and shelter while striving to find forever homes for dogs and cats.
